2002 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 337 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Great all around sport compact. factory upgrades like none other, BBS rims, TT brakes, 6 spd, recaros, lowered sports suspension, ect... I love the car I hate the company VWOA and thier coilpack issues, unhelper customer service and bad dealerships have killed my VW experience next time I'll by an Audi and get the real service.


Best Features

RIMS, 6spd, suspension, brakes, seats, body kit, interior trim, exhaust....


Worst Features

spare coil packs and a rear sway bar.

2002 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

The 1.8T is fun to drive and I haven't done any modifications. My biggest gripe/problem is the car is seeing the dealership more than the road now! Check engine light has came on 3 times over the last 3 months...and it's on again. This is my second VW and I don't think there will be a 3rd. They say they only get better and learn from the consumer...but i guess I'm tired of being the test market on my account. Coil pack issue, plastic window clips, air bag sensor light...what's next?


Best Features

The interior is very accommodating to the tall person.


Worst Features

I would like to see VW work on bettering their reputation. Work hard to be better than honda. When i talk to car enthusiast...they don't talk about VW. Would like to know that if I bought a VW...consumer guide wouldn't dog it so bad.

2002 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

this is my 6th new VW and through the last three model runs mk2, jetta3 and now Golf GTI IV the improvement is outstanding not to mention the extra room and the refined interior and ergonomics,quality of trim and details like heated seats and traction control make this vehicle a class in its own. Only issues have been the ignition coil recall which I was able to crawl the car to the dealer and a loaner and immediate one day repair where provided,also pwer window mech failed but also was repaired on the spot maintenance has been 3 $50 services and so far 2 years into it that is all other than gas that Ihave invested in this vehicle


Best Features

Great power and gas mileage,handling and comfort features


Worst Features

heated seats in rear so friends aren't jealous,fix power window issue
